  1. Begin with properly fired shelf cone 04 bisque.  Moisten a clean sponge and wipe bisque to remove any dust.
  2. With a pencil and AC-230 Clay Carbon Paper, transfer the images of the letters onto each canvas. The sample uses 5 - 3” canvas ornaments to spell out E-L-I-S-E.
  3. Once the designs have been transferred, you may begin filling in the animals. Elephant - Using a CB-106 #6 Script Liner, apply 2 coats of SC-60 Silver Lining for the body; using a CB-110 #10/0 Liner to apply 2 coats of SC-16 Cotton Tail for the white of the eye, and 1 coat SC-30 Blue Dawn for the iris. It is then outlined with SG-401 Black Designer Liner.

  8. Once the designs have dried completely, they will need to be covered with a Foundations Sheer and the boarder is painted with a corresponding Stroke & Coat.
